05.08.07DVR William Girlder's last film. Starring TOny Curtis. About some native american medicine man trying to rebirth himself by growing a fetus on Susan Strassberg's shoulder. It starts off really well with moments of genuine creepiness but by the end it's so over-the-top out-of-control huge that I sort of lost interest. A lot of that might have to do with how dated the effects are but mostly I think it's that I dont like it when things get too huge. Same with Ghostbusters and Spiderman 3 and anything else. For me the perfect balance of dreading something huge happening/fighting to stop it and how it actually resolves is Carpenter's Prince of Darkness. That one arm is enough... because something so huge or evil or powerful or whatever is bound to dissapoint when you actually see it. anyway... i really liked the first half of this movie.
